President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday tasked all Nigerian universities to introduce courses that will teach moral and leadership roles. He said the aim is to serve as standard for fighting corruption at institutions of higher learning.

Speaking through the Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission NUC, Professor Julius Okojie, yesterday in Jos during the combined 27th and 28th convocation of the University of Jos which also coincided with the 40th anniversary of the establishment of the university, the President noted that such will ensure perfect governance structures at all levels.

He equally charged all Vice Chancellors of federal and private universities as well as all higher institutions to key into his administration?s policies of ensuring standard of higher learning in tertiary institutions.


The President used the occasion to applaud the University of Jos for impacting legacies on the education sector as one of the key factors to development. Former Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon also commended the institution. He said the university had done exceptionally well over the years.

In his remark, the Vice-Chancellor of the university, Professor Hayward Mafuyai noted that one of the reasons for the success of the university was the emphasis the institution places on providing high quality teaching.
